South and West Yorkshire Leaders Decarbonisation Conference

26 May 2021

02:00pm - 04:00pm



To meet net zero targets it will be crucial for business, industry and local government to work together. Working to support each other to achieve our individual decarbonisation goals will be a lot more effective than all of us seeking to accomplish them in isolation.

As the Company responsible for delivering electricity in Yorkshire, we recognise that our role in this task is crucial. To help ensure that we provide the support needed across multiple sectors we are bringing together senior leaders from across the region to consult with them and for them to consult each other.

As we plan for the future we want to know how best we can support major users and suppliers of power in our region to decarbonise. We want to hear about your obstacles to decarbonisation and what more you need from us to achieve net zero.

We hope you will be able to join us for our West and South Yorkshire Leaders Decarbonisation Conference, taking place from 2-4pm on 26th May. Attending will be senior representatives responsible for major decisions around energy usage and supply, decarbonisation and strategic planning from power generators, major industrial users, housing, retail, commercial and industrial developers, the EV industry and local authorities.

You will have the opportunity to hear from us about the changes we are planning to support decarbonisation in the region, what these will mean for your organisation and to discuss with peers from across the region common challenges to decarbonisation and opportunities to collaborate. Above all we want you to tell us what support you need from us. We know there is already a huge amount of innovative work underway in our region and we want to provide a platform for this to be showcased.

We look forward to seeing you then.

Please note that we have capped attendance to these events. Whilst we will do our best to accommodate all who are interested to attend, we are prioritising those who received a direct invite.
